This ninety-minute west coast-style IPA has nine hop additions of Warrior and Amarillo and comes in at a whopping 90 IBUs. A tongue-twisting treat for the hophead in all of us!

On tap at Lureís. Pours hazy orangish amber with off-white head. Aromas of citrusy hops, caramel malt, and a wee of pine. Flavor is a ton of bitter hops with good amount of citrus and nice malt backbone. The bitterness lived up to the reported IBU in my opinion. Nice to have a fresh IPA on tap.

Bomber picked up from Bruisiní. hah. "Nine hop additions of Warrior and Amarillo comes in at a whopping 90 IBUs". So, where is it? Like so many other self-proclaimed extra hoppy brews from the Carolinas, this falls short. What we have here is a standard, mildly bitter IPA with almost British influences. The aroma is woody with some non-descript citrus and an almost meaty note. I can get enough hops in the way of flavor to impart a distinct bitterness on my palate and tell this is an IPA, but itís definitely not intense. Nothing really stands out; I canít pinpoint solid grapefruit, grass, wood, pineapple, pine etc. This isnít bad, though. No off-flavors and enough bitterness to hold my interest. Drinkable, but not hop-flavorful enough to be called west coast style.

growler. Citric snap followed by slight alcohol. The best hop-forwoard offering of RJ Rockers so far.

Served on tap into a standard RJ Rockers pint. The appearance of this beer was orange with only a small amount of head present. The aroma had a very nice hop note to it (as would be expected). While this beer was advertised to have 90 IBUs, all 90 did not show up to the party. It did however have a nice flavor with medium bitterness that was light on the palate. Overall this is probably one of the nicest beers Iíve tried from RJ Rockers. However, it is quite hard to find as they do not bottle it that I have ever seen. Might be worth a shot to track down for a true hop-head.
